Leila Bordreuil releases debut album 'Headflush'
Brooklyn-based, French cellist, composer and sound artist Leila Bordreuil has released her debut album 'Headflush'. The album was recorded in a single afternoon in Brooklyn and comprises a collection of unprocessed amplified cello works, exploring the limits of tonal perception.
As a result of Bordreuil's aim to challenge conventional cello practice through extreme extended techniques and amplification methods, 'Headflush' is the sound of the artist hidden in sound, absent in a bleak bliss. It's now available via Catch Wave Ltd. Stream the title track below.
Leila Bordreuil's performance at Le Guess Who? 2019 is curated by Patrick Higgins. Also performing as part of this curation are a.o. Tyondai Braxton, Conrad Tao, Miranda Cuckson, Vicky Chow, Stine Janvin, Mariel Roberts, and more.
